Buckminster Green LLC added this to Protect Your House From Winter Water Damage
Even if water just overflows on the exterior and doesn't get inside the house, it can do some serious damage in short order. In this picture a scupper box channels water through a parapet wall that surrounds the roof. At some point in the past, overflowing water deteriorated the brick mortar in this area. Following the downspout down to the ground, we get to another critical point for keeping water out of your house. Ideally a downspout goes directly into a rain leader or drainpipe that leads to the sewer. If this isn't the case, it should direct the water as far from your foundation as possible, since the whole point of gutters is to keep water away from the house. If your downspout goes into a rain barrel, clean the screen and open the tap so that it doesn't fill up and freeze in the winter. Ideally, use a diverter to direct water away from the rain barrel in winter, when you don't need the water.
